A popular community café looks to have been saved from the brink after a huge protest against its potential closure. Abney Cafe, in Abney Park, Cheadle, has become a hub for families, dog-walkers and residents from the area after opening five years ago. But last week Stockport Council, who own the building it runs out of, served an eviction notice on Kate and Stephen Peacock who run the venue.
“If you wanna be a rock star, look out the window, stare at the clouds and do loud farts...”That was some of the important advice Oasis front-man Liam Gallagher dished out to a room full of children during a weird and wonderful interview for VICE. The Manchester Evening News reports, the kids bombarded Liam with questions about his beloved Manchester City, Disney films, anger management and brother Noel in the Q&A.
It was once a bustling street where the nation’s most popular TV characters lived and loved - now it’s a derelict wasteland away from public view. The decay of Granada’s former Coronation Street set had remained largely unseen since it shut but has now been revealed by an “urban explorer’s” striking new video. Karim Miah, 32, made the soap’s set - where filming stopped after 30 years in 2013 - his latest project and captured a very different location from the one viewers will remember.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
